6 Palestinians continue hunger strike in “Israeli” jails

06:01 20 September 2021 Author :  

Six Palestinian prisoners in “Israel” continued their hunger strike in protest of the “Israeli” policy of administrative detention, according to a Palestinian NGO on Sunday.

The Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS) said in a statement that the longest striking prisoner, Kayed al-Fasfous, began his hunger strike 67 days ago.

The policy of administrative detention allows the “Israeli” authorities to extend the arrest of a prisoner without charge after the expiry of a sentence for a period of six months.

There are around 4,850 Palestinian detainees in “Israeli” prisons, including 40 women, 225 children, and 40 administrative detainees, according to institutions concerned with prisoners’ affairs./agencies
